Subject: Logistics on a Massive Scale
Amateurs study tactic, while professionals study logistics is a phrase common in the military. This is how the difficult job of supporting a massive campaign in Europe with much of the supplies coming from the US was done. A historian cannot understand the flow of the campaign following the D-Day invasion without an understanding of the logistical basis for decisions.
